    "In Style" means nothing.

    I've never been into Monkey Boots, but DM has their own version now called The Peter

    What's the historical/subcultural story behind monkey boots? I don't think I've ever seen them before... another skin thing?

    she looks like she could be Gwenyth Paltrow's younger, infinitely better looking sister.

    She reminds me of Julie McCullough from Growing Pains: Julie [​IMG] Blonde skinhead [​IMG]

    tbh, I don't know what the history behind monkey boots are. A lot of my friends in the 80s wore them as alternatives to Docs, but I always just wore Docs and never really liked monkey boots. I don't remember them being an exclusively skinhead thing, just a general "punk subculture" shoe

    That blonde in the FP is sooo damned hot I took a triple-take on her.

    I saw the YY by Docs in Maxfield I think... the price difference btwn. those and the mainline is a joke.

    edit: The MIE's on the other hand I believe are an amazing deal.

    I really like the red stitching on the 1461 shoe.

    I'm such a tool that I will probably get those next spring, even at the over-inflated rip off Raf prices

    the other 2 are monstrosities

    Wearing my Doc Martens spectators today, these bloody things are tough, at one point I think I wore them every day for a year and a half, and they still are comfortable. But lord, they have been beat up, I should be embarrassed to be seen in them. My 8-hole blacks that I had to send away for (and wait 6 months) in 1988 are long-disappeared, sadly. I had a skinhead/mod roommate (anti-racist) who had 14-hole oxbloods. There were lots of loverly little shag/fringe girls hanging around who wanted nothing to do with me! [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    ^^ yea same sizing

    I have the black 3 eyelet shoe and the "James" brown 8 eyelet boot (which is similar to a very authentic 60s skinhead boot referred to as the "astronaut" that was in dark brown), in the excel leather. both are really sweet, I like the non-yellow welt stitching on them.

    I like and own a pair from steel-boots.com. (I have the 15 holes). Not docs, but they're mean stompy boots and rivet approved. Made and shipped from Slovakia.
